Thank you so much for your interest in Twin Elm Guest Ranch and 2E RV Resort. We have about 200 hundred acres of the most beautiful Texas hill country and Indian Creek meets the Medina River right here on our property. The sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking. You can enjoy hiking on one of our many trails looking for arrowheads and other Indian artifacts or spend the day fishing in the river. We offer horseback riding four times a day or advanced rides per special request. Our sunset hayrides are always fun and roping lessons soon follow. There is nothing more magical than to sit out by the campfire and look at the millions of stars and roast marshmallows and make s’mores. We serve three big cowboy meals a day in our rustic dining hall. Our game room is equipped with a satellite tv, pool table, air hockey and ping pong table.
You will love it here!

The vibe at Rustic Texas Ranch Camping

The Medina River is the perfect spot to plop a camp chair on the rock bed and let any troubles you have just wash away - I really can’t think of a better way to fall asleep and then wake up than next to this river. This gorgeous, crystal clear spring fed river is also perfect for tubing, or exploring a little bit more distance with a kayak (get with 2E for rentals). Kathlyn and the whole crew were great at making me feel right at home. They host a weekly rodeo every Friday starting Memorial Weekend, going through Labor Day - I can’t wait to go back!
The Medina River is very refreshing and a lot of fun, offering a couple nice bends to explore. Several deeper pools of water along the river allowed me to get all the way in and swim with my dog, who really enjoyed jumping from a rock outcropping. The water flowed at a nice pace, allowing kayaking and tubing. Other than that, camping was a breeze. Nice trees along river. There is a two-lane road that borders the camping area, so there will be some traffic, though not objectionable. I would definitely return for the river.
The site itself was lovely, mostly because of the river access and how semi-secluded it was; the grass was a little high when I first got there but it was taken care of the following day. The directions brought me to the RV park less than away and when I got there, after 5 pm, like I said I would be, there was no one there to at least point me in the direction of the site and zero response from the host. Another camper showed up, just as confused as I was, who realized I was looking for the same site. We had to circle the park a few times to get some help, then finally a person staying at the park told us it was just behind the arena further down. There was still no response to my messages and calls during my stay.
There is a quaint little town close by to explore too.
John did all a guest could ask for. He shared his favorite camp spots, provide a few local tips, offered his support if I were to need it, and then, gave me my freedom. The grounds were vibrant in the sun and beautifully moody in the rain. The river flows through the camp, and seemingly, through yourself as well. It was a wonderful stay.
We loved the easy access camping spot right off the highway and not too far from the cute little town, Bandera (especially useful in case you forgot some things like we did). The hosts were friendly and hospitable!
This was a perfect getaway for labor day weekend. Whereas most parks were fully booked, this piece of paradise was perfect. For two of the three days, we had the entire place to ourselves. The third day, only one other couple was there.
The restrooms and showers were a 2 min drive away. They were clean and had A/C.
The river was a little low but I would definitely come back here.
